Global City Beats
Global City Beats is a User Generated Content film project initiated by the Voelker brothers and Yahoo!. The idea was to ask internet users to send in their short films and pick out the best 15 films for a 90 minute movie suited for the big screen. The response was overwhelming. Up until now more than 800 filmmakers from South Africa, Australia, South America, Europe and the USA have registered with the Voelker Brothers.

Yahoo Film Featuring Parkour
Currently Julie Angel is shooting a piece with Team Member Tracey and the female students of our Parkour Academy which will be part of a feature film project sponsored by internet giant Yahoo entitled 'Global City Beats'. More information on the film, which will be released first in theatres in Germany and then may move on to global release, can be found here. This will be the first ever piece created using female practitioners exclusively and should go a long way to raise awareness surrounding their skills and potential.
City Girls: UPDATE
Julie Angel's new short film for Yahoo's Global City Beats featuring the female community of our Parkour Academy has been going extremely well, with the traceuses demonstrating some impressive fluidity and skill throughout. The filming continues today, with Julie hoping to finish the edit by the end of the month.
City Ladies Update
Some sneak preview images of the forthcoming 'City Ladies' video edit by Julie Angel for Yahoo's Global City Beats film can be found now on the newspage of her website, here. This edit is the first ever piece created exclusively utilising female practitioners of parkour and is sure to make some serious waves once released.
